BIOMES PLACE ON EARTH? Example of Chaparral in
Southern California Example of Blue Oak found
within The Chaparral Black-Tailed Jackrabbits, Cactus Wren, Golden Jackal, Gray Fox, Puma's, and many other tiny creatures live within this habitat. Also a great habitat for Lizards, and reptiles. •To conserve water most animals eat their food twice. The Chaparral only receives 10-17 inches of rain per year Visiting a Chaparral would pretty much involve everything you need for going to the beach.
This Includes: Many endangered Species Within the Biome include the Albatross, Tiger Salamander, California Red Leg Frog, Spotted Owl, etc.. etc. Yes! Climate change is an issue within every biome. Global Warming is a problem to every ecosystem on the planet, and it most certainly could affect the balance of heat and precipitation that keeps this biome the way it is. Earthquakes are very common within the Chaparral towards the East Coast of California because of it being on top of the San Andreas Fault line. THE CHAPARRAL Blue Oak, Common Sagebrush, King Protea, and Olive Trees can be found within the Chaparral, but the Chaparral is the home to many other different types of Bushes and Shrubs aswell. Blue Oak within the Chaparral can survive temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit for several weeks at a time, and that is what makes this organism specially adapted to the hot temperatures within this Biome. Different Organisms within this Biome have the ability to grow their roots deeper into the soil to absorb water, Especially when precipitation is rather low in certain times of the year. Many animals eat the various plants within the area, that are close to the ground. Most of them are Omnivores. Golden Jackal that can be found within
The Chaparral Biome •Most of the animals in that area being omnivores tend to eat mostly plant and draw moisture out of them . •The puma is the only carnivore within the Biome, and will eat any small to medium animal.
(not very much competition for the Puma) This is a Wild Puma that can be found within a Chaparral. Hollywood is a public place of interest from all over the world with tons of different movies filmed everyday located right within a Chaparral. The Golden Gate Bridge, is not exactly a Chaparral, but it is located inside San Francisco which has Chaparral Biomes all throughout it. Big Sur is a very famous beach between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and has Chaparral Biomes scattered throughout it. Other Biomes Nearby Include - Yosemite National Park,
located on the East Coast of California,
is a Coniferous Forest Biome Death Valley located in middle southern California is a good example of a Desert Biome Wildfires are very common within the Chaparral because of the hot, dry, climate, and the abundance of shrubs and bushes growing on the ground. Summer is very hot and dry, Temperatures can range from 30 to 100 Fahrenheit. Majority of the rain comes during the winter, but Chaparral's have a long dry summer that usually causes wildfires. Mudslides are very common within Chaparral Biomes, because of the high amounts of dirt that can get washed away during a suddenly large rainfall. Santa Anna Winds are also a huge threat to the Chaparral. Spotted Owls look like something
that will show up in your nightmares. It provides protection against erosion, it allows underground water supplies to recharge, it defines California as a place, offers unique opportunities to remain connected to nature on a local level, it also moderates local climates, and it provides an important habitat for an interesting assortment of animals. ........Plus Hollywood is located dead center in the middle of a Chaparral. We lose the Chaparral, We Lose Hollywood. I don't wanna lose Hollywood.
